Through expert Doug Stowe's decades of experience, you'll learn the basic techniques to get started, as well as more advanced ways to approach and create finely crafted boxes. Throughout the book, Stowe offers this advice: Repeat yourself. Repetition leads to refinement and refinement leads to success. The projects are arranged by the level of difficulty and as you grow in confidence, use your imagination and ask a few questions: What if this box were made in that wood? What if that joint were used on this box? What if I made it larger, or smaller? Asking "What if?" will challenge and engage you as a box maker for years of adventure.
